. mullah yunus is high on the list of kill/capture targets, and is on the run from us special forces. he is the taliban head of operations for the province of baghlan, and is said to have been behind an infamous suicide attack that killed 70 people, most of them civilians. yunus is a rising star in the taliban leadership, and was promoted to his position after special forces killed his predecessor last year. we ask him if the taliban are ready to talk peace with the afghan government. >> narrator: we ask mullah yunus if the taliban will ever be willing to negotiate. >> narrator: young commanders like mullah yunus have risen to positions of power because of the kill/capture campaign. they appear to have little interest in making peace. those close to the us military acknowledge there's a danger that the kill/capture campaign may radicalize the taliban, but, they say, it's worth the risk. >> many of them are more extreme, which makes it harder to negotiate with them, but it also makes them sloppier. they haven't had as much time on the battlefield, and so i'm sure they would much prefer us
